I get low FPS in viewport playback on a beefy PC, while I get better FPS count on a MacBook Pro that is supposedly to be an inferior machine.
i9- 7940x 3.10 GHz
GeForce RTX 2080Ti
2.9 6-core intel core i9
Radeon Pro 560x 4 GB (not available for Blender, so I guess this doesn’t play a role)
500 Gb SSD
I am following along this tutorial on liquid simulations .
After baking the data, I get a FPS rate in the viewport of less than 4FPS from frame 1, while the performance of the machine in the video tutorial ranges from 20fps to 8fps. (i can’t tell which specs the machine from the author of the video has, but worth to mention that my PC bakes the data at a noticiable faster speed).
I tested the same file on the MacBook Pro described above, and I got 10 FPS from frame 1, not going below 7.5 FPS throughout the complete playback.
Any clue on what’s happening?
